Stay Healthy With Busy Schedules Step 2.jpg
Read the nutrition labels to see how much trans fat is in a product. Since January 2006, manufacturers have been required to list trans fat content on their labels. Look for the phrases "partially hydrogenated", "hydrogenated" or "shortening", since these ingredients contain trans fat.
  • Also, if a product says 0 grams of trans fat, it might not be 0. Look for the word "hydrogenated" and it means it contains trans fat. The FDA allows food manufacturers to list trans fat as 0 grams if it contains less than 0.5 grams of trans fat.
